“Top quality is the guarantee for genuine sustainability. Replacing soles really does make sense in that respect too.”
— Ralf Dujmovits | LOWA PRO Team
Resoling A second life for your favourite footwear
Resoling is possible for all footwear with cemented sole construction, in other words, for footwear from the MOUNTAINEERING and TREKKING lines. With this type of shoe design the upper is pinched around the last and glued under high pressure to the underside of the insole. The midsole and outsole are then glued on to this solid unit. Cemented footwear is extremely robust and stable. Footwear of this type can be resoled since sole and upper are attached to each other by glueing on the sole. The worn-out sole is sanded down completely and a new sole is glued on to the upper. This process noticeably extends the service life of the footwear, hence making an important contribution to sustainability. For models with GORE-TEX membrane, however, we cannot provide warranty for the subsequent waterproof qualities of the shoes.
Which parts of my shoe can be repaired?
You will find the name of your shoe on the label attached to the inner face of the shoe’s tongue.
How it works
The first point of contact for all repairs within the warranty is your LOWA specialist retailer. Thanks to their expertise, your retailer can best judge what steps to take, or if your boots should be sent for repair or to make a complaint. If it is a complaint within the warranty, then take the boots to the retailer or send them in if they were purchased online or elsewhere (all retailers can be found here). Always attach a copy of the receipt to the boots and a short letter describing the problem. The retailer will then look after the rest of the complaint process.
